If your dog did a wee on the floor of someone else's house would you like to know?
That's all. TIA.

Thanks. I'll send a quick text.

You didn't tell them at the time? shock

Didn't see it happen. DH found it by stepping in it when he drew the curtains.

Oh your friends dog peed at your house!

Yes I'd want to know and I would come round withy carpet shampooer and sort it out!

Yep. Friend's dog weed on our floor. Lovely surprise for DH.

This is why I generally avoid taking my dogs to other people's houses. I'd be utterly mortified!

Yes, you should tell them. I once popped round to Mum's with a friend's dog who wee'd on the hall carpet. She was housetrained, but guess just excited. Hope you have wooden floors and not carpet!

I don't think I would tell them.

I would do if they were there with you when you realised, but I think its unfair to tell them now they have gone and by text too is just wrong IMO

I'm not a dog owner but I would tell them.

I would want to know as obviously it means dog not house-trained, and would want to avoid similar situations occurring in the future.

I would want to know, as in the case of my dog it would be extremely unlikely and therefore a possible concern, either health or otherwise.

If a friends dog did a wee in my house but I didn't notice until after she'd gone I wouldn't ring to tell her! I'd clean it up.

Same as everlong
